Bill Pullman, Tony Hale Join Kristen Stewart-Jesse Eisenberg’s ‘American Ultra’

Bill Pullman and Tony Hale have joined the cast of Lionsgate’s action-comedy “American Ultra,” starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart.

Production began Monday in New Orleans. Topher Grace, John Leguizamo and Walton Goggins also star.

Production companies are PalmStar, Likely Story and Circle of Confusion; producers are Anthony Bregman, Kevin Frakes, Raj Brinder Singh, David Alpert (“The Walking Dead”) and Britton Rizzio, with Ray Angelic as executive producer.

Lionsgate’s Jason Constantine is overseeing. FilmNation Entertainment is handling international sales.

Eisenberg stars as a hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend (played by Stewart), is suddenly turned upside down as his secret past as a sleeper agent comes back to haunt him.

Nima Nourizadeh (“Project X”) is directing from a script by Max Landis (“Chronicle”).
